Hiking Highlight

    The Ferchensee is a small insider tip. Easy to reach with a small walk from Mittenwald. (There is sometimes a shuttle service) or from Elmau. Almost as clear as the Eibsee, but there is a picturesque sunbathing area and nice flat entry points into the lake. In addition, there are not as many tourist crowds here as on other lakes in the region.

    The lake can be bypassed in a small round, in warm weather, he also invites you to swim. The view of the Karwendel is great! Likewise on the Wetterstein.

    Absolute highlight of this quiet lake. Although it is often populated by crowds. It is worthwhile in spite of everything

    Beautiful and calm lake with some swimming opportunities. If you pass here on your hike, it is best to pack bathing suits in your backpack ;-)

    More natural and free of buildings than its neighbor, the Lautersee.
    Hammer perspectives and gentle (free) bathing.

    At the Ferchenseehütte there is one of the best pea soups I've ever eaten (prices are juicy, but the food is good!) The view over the Ferchensee with its alpine panorama is worth every detour! Great, crystal clear mountain lake!

    I could have sat on the bank for hours and watched the fish. For me one of the most beautiful lakes. The tourists sell quite well (Monday, no holidays, corona) on the other hand you could swim well

    The inn at the Ferchensee is highly recommended. The circumnavigation of the lake is also very nice and easy.
